Minesweeper : The Movie

If you’ve seen one video game movie, you’ve seen them all, right? Yeah, I get where you’re coming from. All of them, from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within to the mess that was the Mortal Kombats were total disasters (except maybe Silent Hill, send hate mail to [email protected]), always missing the mark and leaving us disappointed. 

There is still hope. One more golden franchise of gaming remains, but it’s not what you’re thinking. It’s not a first-person shooter, and it’s definitely not The Sims (kill me now) – it’s a bit more casual than that. Grandmas, soccer moms, and bored office workers rejoice: Minesweeper: The Movie is coming. 

The brilliant minds at College Humor bring us the trailer to the movie based on the classic Microsoft Windows timewaster. This is certain to be the first video game blockbuster.

Commander: “Why are you here soldier?”

Officer: “I’m here because I’m bored!”
